Johnny Depp testifies against Amber Heard during libel lawsuit trial

Johnny Depp is sharing his side of the story amid his vicious $50 million (or more) libel lawsuit trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

A week into the trial in Fairfax County, Virginia, Depp, 58, is the first half of the divorced couple to take the stand and testify against his former spouse.

Depp is suing Heard, 35, for $50 million, alleging she defamed him in an opinion column published in The Washington Post (which is printed in Fairfax County) in December 2018. In the column, she claimed to be a victim of domestic abuse.

Depp opened his testimony Tuesday by calling Heard’s Washington Post story “heinous,” adding, “I never struck Ms. Heard in any way, nor have I ever struck any women in my life.”

In terms of Heard, Depp said she seemed “too good to be true” at the beginning of their relationship.

“She was attentive,” Depp said of the woman he married in 2015. “She was loving. She was smart. She was kind. She she was funny. She was understanding. … We had many things in common, certain blues music … literature.”
